Did Burbank Hand Sunland-Tujunga an Opportunity?

The San Fernando Valley Business Journal reports that the City of Burbank has turned down permits to build a 60,000 Whole Foods natural food store in their city. Apparently the local residents were worried about crowds of tofu eating, granola chomping beautiful people invading their turf.

They should be so lucky! The folks in Sunland-Tujunga are fighting not tofu but forklifts and are forced to go commando around town for a lack of underwear in the town.

If the folks in ST want a Whole Foods, they can visit this site.

Would love a Whole Foods in S-T; however, Vons, both our Ralphs, and Albertsons probably would not be so happy.

I am glad MS that you have begun to realize that we are not anti- commerce. We are anti-Home Depot on a site which breaks the law not only of our Specific Plan, but violates the Municipal Code and has Safety violations up the wazu. We have a lovely new development which will break ground on a two-acre site in Tujunga this spring and we are delighted. Of course, we worked with the developer for some time to be sure it was what the community wants.

People all over LA are fuming over the rape of their communities by developers. It is time for the Council to realize that they were elected to represent the people and their wishes not to tell the people what to do. One more CRA debacle and who knows what the populace will do.

Supposedly Burbank is offering alternative locations. I'm going to be pissed if the nutjobs/Clowncil keep them from moving in.
